I don't agree the first knee had her down and from what I remember it was pretty close and looked like she was letting up. but this is from memory.

Oh well Nakamoto is still a beast really like her her style.

The first knee did the majority of the damage, but its hard to argue that the 2nd knee had no effect. Who knows if Duke could have survived without the 2nd shot, which was clearly illegal.
